Bring back the Smurfs! 

This year's Coutts Award went to a talented and deserving artist named Mer- 
lin Dennis. The 21 -year-old Butler sophomore's work has been on display in the Erman 
B. White Gallery during much of the spring semester, he even had his own show. Den- 
nis is successful in many different kinds of art, but says, "Cartooning is my favorite and 
I also like charcoal." 

Dennis is no stranger to winning awards. A Wichita native, Dennis attended 
East High School where he served as editorial cartoonist on the school newspaper for 
three years. There, he was recognized as the best high school cartoonist in the state 
during his junior year. (He came in second his senior year and third his sophomore 
year.) Dennis credits his dad for being his main inspiration because, he says, "When I 
was a kid, he was really into comic books." 

Although his love for cartooning is great, Dennis says he doesn't spend much 
time watching cartoons. "Ever since they took the Smurfs off the air, I don't watch a lot. 
Cartoons have gone downhill." 

Dennis feels that his artistic talent has grown since he came to Butler. He 
recalls, "Before 1 came here I never did a lot of shading and I didn't know how the heck 
to measure with your pencil and thumb. But after the first year it really came together." 
He says he values the constructive criticism he gets at Butler, compared to that of the 
high school environment, because. "It pushes me to do better." 

Dennis plans to graduate this fall and go on to Wichita State University. He 
wants to major in art education so he can work with kids at the elementary school level. 
He jokes, "I'm a little bit hyper myself, so we'd get along pretty good." And what does 
Dennis think about people who complain that they can't draw? "They haven't 
tried. ..anybody can draw." Well, that's pretty easy for him to say.

"Barbershop:' 1996 by Merlin Dennis 

Arty Facts 5 

It started out to be a typical late Kansas spring day: hot, windy and humid. But unlike 
364 days, this one was unique for many reasons. This was graduation day at Butler County 
Community College. For the hundreds of graduates attending, this was the day they had waited 
for, the first day of their future. 

It was a first step. Some would be going on to various universities to continue their 
education. Others would be starting their search for their dream job, the one that their studies 
had prepared them for. For those not quite sure what they wanted to do next, this was a new 
beginning. Today, the graduating class of 1996 had one goal, to graduate. On May 18, they 
achieved that goal. 

This graduation ceremony, like myriad others, had many common factors. Like oth- 
ers, students gathered in alphabetical order and marched to the gymnasium for the ceremonies. 
In the gym (and the Kansas Room of the 1500 Building, which was packed, too, with well- 
wishers), family friends and significant others, were waiting to watch and cheer their loved 
ones as they received their diplomas. Like most graduation ceremonies, the faculty put on its 
fancy robes and tassles, and this one had a typical order of events. But this was no ordinary 
graduation ceremony. This one had a certain flair, a definite special quality. 

Once the grads had taken their seats, Pastor Stan Seymour of the First Christian Church 
in El Dorado gave the invocation. Then came BCCC graduate and vocalist Rachel Taylor's 
rendition of the school song, "Between Earth and Sky," followed by the college's Headliners 
singing "Think of Me" and "Friends of the Heart." Upon completion of these talented artists' 
offerings. President Jackie Vietti made introductions and the day's guest speaker was announced. 

Barbara Matous, director and owner of Acrobatic Academy Fitness and Eduction Center 
in Wichita, was this year's featured speaker. Matous, a Butler grad, spoke of her childhood 
memories growing up in El Dorado, the hard work and dedication she had which brought her to 
the point she was in her life. BCCC graduates, family and friends listened as she told how they, 
too, should follow their dreams and someday their dreams just might come true. For this is 
what graduation is all about, following your dreams. 



Upon completion of her speech, the 1996 class was presented to the audience, 
and awards were presented to this year's Order of the Gold receipients, and to the win- 
ner of the prestigious Hubbard Award of Excellence, Ann Elaine Patton. 

As graduation exercises wrapped up, graduates proceeded to the front of the 
Power Plant to receive their degrees, certificates and GEDs. Each person's name was 
called, family and friends applauded, cheered, rang bells and whistled their congratula- 
tions. For some, although clearly embarassed, it was worth the trip to receive the cov- 
eted award for all their hard work. Then a benediction was given and the graduating 
class of 1996 marched out of the building to music performed by the BCCC Wind En- 

A reception was held on the front lawn. Here, moms and dads took pictures of 
their "babies," while others milled around sipping lemonade and reminiscing and ex- 
changing congratulations among friends. 

Steve Moses was one of the recent grads. He'd just received his Associate in 
Applied Science degree. Moses explained that he is employed with Boston Chicken in 
Wichita and that he plans to continue his education at K-State, majoring in restaurant/ 
motel management. Moses wore a graduation cap like the hundreds of other graduates, 
except his was customized. He attached a telling sign to his. "10K — 3 YRS LATER." 
An observer might thing that maybe he was a member of the track team. But only upon 
talking to Steve Moses does one come to understand that it referred to $10,000 — the 
amount of money he'd spent getting his Butler degree — and three years — the time it 
took to reach this milestone. 

"WHODATHUNKIT?" was the post script. A fitting one on a day like this.—

The first Midwest Spectacular lamb sale drew people from all 
over who were hoping to find a great lamb at a good price. 

Story by Dave "Bulldog" Brown 
Photo by Jeff "One Hundred Percent Wool" Cooper 

There was no wool being pulled over anyone's eyes as the Butler show management 
team hosted what was being touted as the first Midwest Spectacular one warm evening in 
April. It's an auction for prospect club lambs that are brought to the sale by some of the finest 
lamb breeders in Kansas. The five breeders who came to the sale brought 10 lambs apiece, and 
with 50 top show lambs for sale, people from across the region came to the college's agricul- 
ture facility hoping to find a great lamb at a good price. The five breeders at the sale were: 
Slater Club Lambs, Stine Club Lambs, Schweer/Roberts Club Lambs, Mein Club Lambs, and 
Maddox Club Lambs. 

The BCCC show management team, led by Matt Corwine, set up the arena for the 
sale. In fact, the show management team did most of the work period. They made the fliers for 
the sale, they built the ads and had them printed in magazines where they would be seen all 
over the Midwest. The success of this sale was due largely to how well it was advertised and 
the commitment made by Butler's Matt Corwine and Blake Flanders. 

The sale started with two quick eye-openers that commanded everybody's attention. 
The first lamb to sell was a Slater Lamb which sold for $475. Next up was a Stine Lamb which 
sold for a whopping $ 1 ,350. It turned out to be the high selling lamb of the evening. After all 
was said and done the lamb sale averaged $300 per lamb and was considered to be highly 
successful for everybody involved. The sale average exceeded all of the expectations that 
anybody had for a first sale. Event organizers hope it will become an annual event. This is 
partly due to the fact that the breeders who came to the sale all had their fair share of success, 
and partly due to the excellent planning and marketing of the sale. 

Of the five breeders who came to the sale, Stine Club Lambs had the highest average 
of $477.50 per lamb. Mein Club Lambs ran a close second with an average of $437.50 per 
lamb. Schweer/Roberts came in third at $233.33 per lamb, Slater was fourth highest with 
$194.44 per lamb, and Maddox was fifth with $152.77 per lamb. For the first year these aver- 
ages were great and it is only bound to get better with age. This is because the more years a sale 
is put on the more patrons it attracts, and if the lambs sold at the sale are successful year after 
year, the fame of the sale will grow also. 

The Midwest Spectacular was deemed a big success by the event's planners and all of 
the breeders were pleased with the turnout of the people who came to the sale and with the 
prices that were obtained for the lambs sold. The Midwest Spectacular was great this year but 
in years to come it should be even better.

McConnell astronomy instructor considers the cosmos his classroom 

Final frontier is students' destination 

When students step into one of instructor Doug Wereb's 
classes, they embark on a "voyage" to the final frontier — 

The astronomy teacher at Butler of McConnell Air Force 
branch does more than just lecture, he creates an environ- 
ment where his students can experience the fantastic won- 
ders of the cosmos. 

"I don't want my students to memorize and regurgitate. 
I want them to really learn about space," said Wereb, who 
has been teaching at McConnell for three years. 

The 1975 Ohio Sate University graduate taught as- 
tronomy and was a senior research associate at the Univer- 
sity of Virgina for eight years before moving to Wichita. 

"I was offered a job at the Omnisphere to be a plan- 
etarium educator, so I decided to move," he said. "I started 
teaching at Butler in 1 993, and I really enjoyed it. Butler is a 
good school and the students are professional — I find teach- 
ing rewarding." 

And for Wereb's students, the feeling is mutual. 

"His enthusiasm is contagious," said Kevin Hickey, one 
of Wereb's students. "When 1 first enrolled in the class, I 
thought it would be a lot of numbers and definitions; how- 
ever. Professor Wereb has made it a lot of fun, I've really 
learned a lot." 

Wereb helps his students appreciate astronomy by ex- 
tending the learning environment outside the classroom. They 
take field trips to the Omnisphere in Wichita and to the 
Cosmosphere in Hutchinson. 

"I think it's important for the students to have hands-on 
experience," he said. "You can't bring spacecraft to the class- 
room, so I take them to it. They learn so much more by actu- 
ally seeing and experience some of the things I discuss dur- 
ing class. 

Besides field trips to science centers, the astronomy pro- 
fessor doesn't hesitate to move his classroom outdoors, where 
his students get hands-on experience using telescopes to scan 
the corridors of outer space. 

"I remember my dad showing me the stars through a 
telescope when I was just a little boy," he said. It was then 

I became fascinated with space. And being able to share that 
experience with my students is extremely rewarding. 

Besides teaching at BCCC and working as a planetarium 
educator, Wereb also designs and builds rocket systems. "I 
develop low-cost rockets that are used for educational pur- 
poses," he said. He also conducts lectures at local elemen- 
tary and high schools. 

"I love teaching, being able to open people's eyes to 
another world. The future is in space — the final frontier." —

Wereb uses telescopes to boldly go beyond the classroom.

professional organization for students majoring in market- 
ing and management. 
Student paper wins a silver medal at KACP 

Eight awards were won by Butler's student newspaper. 
The Lantern, in April at the annual KACP conference in 
Wichita. Besides the eight individual awards, a silver medal 
award for overall excellence was awarded to thtLantern 's 
staff. Individual awards were given to Matt Jacobs, honor- 
able mention for a special section and sports writing; Jason 
Pearce received honorable mention for review writing; 
Shaun Wilson garnered honorable mention for front page 
design; and Clayton Pearson got two honorable mentions 
for photo essay and sports photography. The judges noted 
that the Lantern was "newsy" and covered campus activi- 
ties well. 

Trustee is named to KACC task force 

Longtime Butler trustee Bob Burch was named as a 
member of the KACC governance task force in April. The 
task force membership consists of community college presi- 
dents and three trustees. "This task force is an important step 
in determining what governance controls will benefit the 
community college system and its 70,000 students," says 
Mikel Ary, chairman of KACC's council of presidents and 
president of Colby Community College as well. 
Butler sweeps Skill and Leadership awards 

Two Butler freshmen walked away with first place 
awards at the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America Skill 
and Leadership Championship held in Wichita in April. Luke 
McKay of Andover and Beth Brautigam of Rosebud, Mo., 
were honored at a ceremony at Century II. McKay, a student 
of computer instructor Mark Sanborn, placed first in tech- 
nical computer applications. Brautigam, a student of ag in- 
structor Blake Flanders, placed first in Prepared Speech. 
Both students plan to graduate in May of 1997. 
Scholarship recipients head for KU, KSU 

The 1996-97 Winnie Broers Scholarship has been 
awarded to two Butler students— Julie Anderson of Burns, 
and Rod Jerrick of Belle Plaine— both '96 Butler graduates 
who are transferring to state universities. Anderson says she 
will continue her studies in journalism at the University of 
Kansas, and Jerrick says he will go on to Kansas State Uni- 
versity, where he will study agribusiness. The Broers Schol- 
arship, given annually, is a $1,000 award and is renewable 
for a second year. In order to be considered, a student must 
be a Butler graduate, have at least a 3.0 GPA, and be trans- 
ferring to either KU or K-State. 



Flint Hills photo seminar offers variety 

Summer classes don't just take place in the classroom 
anymore. Students who have an interest in shooting, devel- 
oping and printing black and white photos can enroll in the 
Flint Hills Photography Seminar, offered on the El Dorado 
campus June 7-12. 

Instructor John Rhoads first presented the idea for this 
course nine years ago. He felt like this was a good plan for 
Butler to offer to its students, a chance for hands-on learning 
in a fun environment. 

Students enrolled in the seminar will be treated to a ro- 
deo, barbecue, trailride and a trip to a working ranch, all of 
which provide myriad photo opportunities. Although the stu- 
dents will spend sometime in the college photo darkroom, 
most of their time will be spent in the field shooting pic- 
tures, Rhoads promises. 

"Everyone who enrolls in the seminar brings new in- 
sight." Rhoads says. "There is a wide range of experience. 
From a high school student with no experience, to a profes- 
sional. For five days the students live on the Butler campus. 
The cost of the class, $295, is a little more expensive than 
regular summer classes. However, the cost does include trans- 
portation, as well as a room. Food and film expenses are not 
covered. The seminar is sponsored by Ilford and provides 
three hours of college credit. —by Jeanne Jones

The Southwest Seminar 

is more than a field trip; 

it's also a pretty good 

recruiting tool, too 

On June 6, area high school honor students will 
embark on an eight-day adventure to the southwest. 
Each year the Southwest Seminar program, headed by 
Don Koke, awards scholarship trips to area high school 

This year the trips were awarded to: Ira Bane, Billie 
Forrester, Patrick Leis, Jenny Sundgren, Nathan Broth- 
ers, Catherine Jones, Carmen McNutt, Brandi Edwards, 
Kristina Kennedy, Chris Mercer, Julia Engelbrecht, 
Joshua Kersting, Megan Parry. Joshua Evans, Megan 
Koppenhkaver, Amy Shipman, and Benjamin Treveeke. 

The program travels to southern Colorado and 
northern New Mexico. The Southwest Seminar gives 
the students hands-on learning about the environment 
and culture. Students, as well as Butler faculty who 
accompany the group, will go camping and hiking, in 
addition to swimming, horseback riding, bicycling, and 
Whitewater rafting. 

"Many of the students who go on these trips end 
up going to school at Butler," Koke explains. "They 
begin at Butler, then go on to a four-year college. "--by 
Jeanne Jones 

During the Southwest Seminar, the students paused to rest while at the Grand Canyon. This was one of the many places 
they visited during their eight day trip. Photos courtesy of Don Koke.

Where else would we run em? 

When Grizzly magazine photographers sign on for a tour or duty here, they are 
given one specific marching order: Shoot lots of film. And burn film they did. During the 
95-96 school year. Grizzly photographers have taken roughly 10,000 pictures of life at 
Butler. However, of those, maybe only 500 were published in the four quarterly issues of 
the magazine. Due to budgetary considerations, there is only so much room for pictures in 
a magazine, even if it is a magazine that runs lots of pictures. ^]The photos on these pages 
are ones that deserved to be published but that had no real home heretofore, thus Ray 
scanned 'em. layed 'em out and we're running them just because we have wanted to all year 
but never really had the reason or excuse. With the exception of the photo on the immediate 
right of the Demies at Sea cast— taken by Tony Applegate— all photos on this page were shot

Story by Yoshihiko "Yoshi" Saito 

We can get exotic recipes from different countries 
by watching TV cooking programs like Yan Can Cook, Great 
Chefs, and World Class Cuisine. Most of these recipes come 
from high-class restaurants in Italy, France and Greece, ex- 
cept for recipes found on Yan Can Cook, where tantalizing 
dishes are furnished by Yan, a funny Chinese cook, who fixes 
various Chinese home dishes. 

In the United States today, international cuisine is 
so popular that we can find Italian, French and Chinese res- 
taurants in many cities and towns — even here in Butler 

But what I think is even more exciting is sampling 
fare from countries that are not so well known for their cui- 

Butler County Community College's International 
Student Association publishes a cookbook each year called 
"Recipes from Around the World." In it, Butler's interna- 
tional students submit recipes from their countries, introduc- 
ing recipes they already know, picking up more from recipe 
books they brought from home, or simply calling their moms 
and asking about how to cook their favorite dishes. 

This year's edition includes recipes from Bulgaria, 
Cyprus, Great Britain, Kenya, Korea, Mexico, Pakistan, Rus- 
sia, Sri Lanka, Taiwan (ROC), Tanzania, Viet Nam, and Zim- 
babwe. Not many people realize that during the Spring 1996 
semester, 408 international students (including resident 
aliens) from 67 countries attended one or more BCCC sites. 

Haresh Rajakaruna, sophomore from Colombo, the 
capital of Sri Lanka, submitted several recipes to this year's 
cookbook, but he admitted he had never cooked those at 
home; they were taken from a cookbook he had. Even though 

he had never cooked any of the recipes, he could talk about 
these foods because he surely had eaten those dishes. So I 
asked him about the recipes he gave. 

One recipe he talked about was a dish called "Pat- 
ties." A Patty is a deep-fried pastry with a filling of cooked 
beef and vegetables inside. Haresh said the filling can be 
beef, pork, chicken, or whatever you like. Patties are sort 
of Sri Lanka's fast food, and people in Sri Lanka — off the 
southern tip of India in the Indian Ocean — eat Patties as 
Americans eat hamburgers here, he added. 

Patties are a very common food in Sri Lanka. Kids 
like them, people make them at home, and most restau- 
rants and grocery stores have them. But there is no such 
restaurant which serves only Patties, according to Haresh.

Haresh thinks that we can make Patties using in- 
gredients sold at grocery stores here. It is easy to make and 
takes about 30 minutes, so he suggests every one try Patties 
and other recipes in the cookbook. 

I, too, think all the recipes in the book are possible 
to prepare using what we can buy at grocery stores like 
Dillons. In fact I cook for myself often. I live in an apart- 
ment in El Dorado, and what I cook is, most times, Japanese 
food (in case you do not remember, yes, I am from Japan). 
Most ingredients I use are from Dillons, and the taste of com- 
pleted dishes cooked with those ingredients is no different at 
all from what I eat in Japan. Of course, as we know, it is now 
available here to buy soy sauce and many seasonings which 
are originally Japanese products. 

In addition, if you want to try some of the recipes 
in the International Student cookbook, there are several mar- 
kets in Wichita which sell foodstuffs of foreign countries. 
When we want to use the exact ingredients or seasonings, 
we may be able to find them at specialty markets there. 

If you are interested in and would like one of the 
"Recipes from Around the World," they are available to buy 
from Janet Obando, International Student Adviser, at the 
counseling office in the 600 Building. One copy is $2. 

It sure is exciting to try something you have never 
tried, and it is not so difficult to try when you read this cook- 
book because if I can cook, so can you! Here are several you 
might want to try.

Overcoming Obstacles 

Both the indoor and outdoor track team had many successes during the 
season, but along with this came a few setbacks that were hard to predict 

Story by Julie Anderson/Photos by Jeff Cooper 

This was a season for setting new records and overcoming obstacles. The track team tried to do its best, but while 
some were breaking records, other members had to withdraw from competition due to illnesses and injuries. 

Things looked bright for the team as the men's distance medley relay won its events at the national indoor meet 
in Carbondale, 111. The team came in fourth in the nation, setting a new Butler track record. Members of the team were: 
Michael Kariuki, Danny McCormack, Robert Walterscheid, and Randy Grayson. 

Other accomplishments included the Grizzlies setting a school record in the 4Xmile and winning the college 
division event, placing ahead of K-State and WSU. In individual events, Stan Iordanov set a BCCC record in the 5,000 
meters at the Texas Relays, Brett Donovan placed second in the high jump, and Laura Nelson finished fourth in shot put. 

Approaching the end of the season, the outdoor track team began to lose some of its best members and this posed 
new problems for the team to face. Their problems started when Mike Wilkey, a four-time all-America runner, came 
down with a respiratory disease, Wegener's granulomatosis, and had to be hospitalized. Shortly after he was released 
another member had to withdraw from competition. Randy Grayson, a three-time all-America runner, who was also 
checked into the hospital, before being diagnosed as a borderline diabetic. 

The remainder of the team did not let this slow them down, instead they did just the opposite. They worked even 
harder to win and kept their teammates in mind while competing in the final events of the season.

It was a year of highs and lows, 
according to first year tennis coach 
Denny Jaye. "There were more ups 
than downs, " Jaye explains. "We had 
some terrific freshmen who gained a 
lot of experience and will come back 
next year as better sophomores who 
will compliment next year's excellent 
freshman class." Both mens and 
womens teams were knocked out 
during tough regional competition. The 
men's record was 37-18, while the 
womens team mustered only six wins.

"Lights, camera, action." No 
you're not in Hollywood, this could be 
observed right here in Kansas. While 
wandering the streets of Burns, watch- 
ing the filming of the movie from the 
designated areas, I happened upon the 
opportunity to experience first hand 
what goes on, thanks to the generosity 
of one of the crew members. Naturally, 
everyone has their own idea of what 
would happen, but not until you actu- 
ally experience it, can you realize the 
excitement in the air and the necessity 
of hard work and how everything 
comes down to one 
thing. ..perfect tim-

It can be just as inter- 
esting watching the 
process of making a 
movie as it is watch- 
ing the movie itself. 
Let me fill you in on 
some of the things 
that occur and see if 
it doesn't change the 
way you watch your 
next movie. 

Taking time out 
from an already busy 
schedule is a lot to ask, especially dur- 
ing the final day of filming. The Mars 
Attacks film crew had started filming 

on April 8th and was now finish- 
ing on the 16th in Burns. Re-

you get to see what 

takes place, it can give you a 

different perspective on the movie.

crew was under, they were still willing 
to take a minute to answer a question 
or just to visit for a few minutes. Be- 
cause of these things I was able to learn 
quite a lot about something I really had 
no previous experience with. 

One evening started out with the 
preparation of the props and equipment 
for the scenes to be filmed later that 
night. Everyone was rushing here and 
there with a job to do. Even the 
most insignificant of 
things had now be- 
come im- 
portant. As 
the time of 
filming drew 
near the relaxed 
nature of the crew 
began to fade. 
Things began to hap- 
pen faster and every- 
one became more seri- 
ous, with a few excep- 
tions. Once the filming had 
begun, talking was no longer 
an option for anyone nearby. 
Director Tim Burton (of Ed- 

Hollywood made a brief appearance. 

by Julie Anderson 

ward Scizzorhands, Batman, and Night- 
mare Before Christmas) could be ob- 
served pacing back and forth; checking 
the scene one more time before the fi- 
nal shoot. 

Being a director requires a lot from 
a person. With the pressure to make ev- 
erything happen as planned and keep 
everything and everyone where they 
should be, it is natural that the director 
should stand out from the others. And 
Burton does just that. Not to be con- 
fused with anyone else he has his own 
way of doing things, from his hair to 
his means of transportation (a golf cart). 
Burton sets his own style. Yet, endur- 
ing everything that he does, he still finds 
time to sign an autograph or say hello 
to his fans who flock to him whenever 
in sight. But, when it comes down to 
filming, nothing could tear him away. 

The biggest problems they seem to 
face include, getting the proper light- 
ing, keeping everything on sched- 

ule, and, of course, keeping the stars 
happy. This is where the "behind the 
scenes" people come in. 

Their most important attribute I 
discovered is their ability to 
wait patiently 
There was 
a 1 - 
a time 
when I 
at least 10 
around await- 
ing their time 
to work. With 
all of this spare 
time on their 
hands, naturally, 
they have to find 
something to fill it with. 

While some resort to the obvious 
choice, talking amongst themselves.

enough to be

When they began preparing for 
a scene, first the set and props had to 
be placed where they were needed. Fol- 
lowing this, the lights had to be set up 
and adjusted to just the right angle. 
Then, the cameras were set up. Finally 
came the arrival of Tim Burton, who 
had been waiting in his trailer. 

Now it was time for the others' 
work to start, while those who set ev- 
erything up got to relax. Just one scene 
may filmed several different times be- 
fore they were done, and it was time to 
move on to the next set. The scenes did 
not appear to be filmed in any specific 
order, and there was not more than one 
specific scene filmed at a time. It is 
amazing how eventually all of these in- 
dividual scenes will fit together. 

During the filming, everyone was 
ready to do whatever was needed. Bur- 

Mars Attacks 29 

ton closely watched every action of the 
actors and actresses in the scene. When 
he couldn't be found sitting in his 
director's chair, he could be seen mak- 
ing sure that everything was all right. 
Putting on the final touches before the 
last take. Once the cameras started roll- 
ing, you could instantly see how every- 
thing was going by the expression on 
his face. It was easy to tell whether 
things were going smoothly or not. At 
that very moment nothing seemed more 
important than what could be seen 
through the camera. Once the scene was 
over he hopped back on his golf cart to 
head off to his next destination. 

After they were 

d o n e 
it was 
time to 
p u t 
u p . 

the opportunity to discuss that particu- 
lar scene and what had taken place pre- 
viously with crew members and to take 
a look inside of the trailers that they 
had been filming in. Everything had 
been specifically designed and picked 
just for this movie; from the furniture 
to the decorations on the walls. Al- 
though some of the old chairs, tables, 
and refrigerators that were setting 
around in the trailer court came from 
the Burns clean up day. They were the 
things that people no longer wanted 
and had been set out on the curb to be 
picked up by the city. Due to rain, the 
city had to postpone the pickup and this 
allowed the movie crew to find a few 
extra props that would come in handy 
later on during the filming. 
During the 

entire time, I noticed that once things 
have started rolling nothing stops until it 
is over. Even then the work is not done. 
After the actors/actresses and even direc- 
tor have left, others remain behind to 
clean things up and prepare for the next 
day. All of this calls for long days and 
hard work. All in all I would have to say 
that this was quite a day, even though I 
only saw one day of it and didn't come 
back to the rush again the following day. 
1 have developed an appreciation for 
what goes into the making of a movie 
and will no longer watch a movie quite 
the same way. 

The previous night was the long 
awaited scene in which the donut shop 
was blown up. For this, about 500 people 
showed up. They came with lawnchairs 
and blankets, prepared to stay as long as 
was necessary. The inside of the donut 
shop was fully stocked with ev- 
erything a real do-

backstage view and have an inside look 
at what happens behind the scenes? 
Well, it all comes down to who you are 
and who you know, and if you are in 
the right place at the right time. 

The atmosphere and objectives 
were quite different from the normal 
day to day life we get to know. There 
was an air of importance that sur- 
rounded the place. Sort of like saying, 
"Hey look over here, notice me."

Leif Jonker, Mars Attacks crew 
member, took the time to show me 
around where I otherwise would not 
have been able to go. This in- 
sight was possible 
because of his gener- 
osity. He summed up 
the entire thing when 
he said, "This is going 
to be a huge movie." 
After finishing up 
filming in Burns, the crew 
then moved on to Wichita, 
where they filmed for three 
days. After that, their next 
stop was Las Vegas, before fin- 
ishing up the movie. They had 
also filmed a scene in Leon dur- 
ing this time. The movie is sched- 
uled to come out sometime in De- 
cember of this year.

Construction on Bob's Donut World began early in March so that it would be ready in April. 

Work began on March 3rd in 
Burns. It took about a month for the 
work to be completed. Everything 
was finished the day before the 
filming was scheduled to begin. It 
started with the construction of a 
donut shop. This was followed by a 
gas station and garage, made by put- 
ting a false front on another build- 
ing in the vicinity. 

Soon to be brought in from 
California was a donut to be put on 
top of the donut shop, but this 
wasn't just any ordinary donut, this 
one stood 26 feet high. There arose 
a new problem, people began stop- 
ping at "Bob's Donut World" for 
something to eat or drink. Imagine 
how they felt when they discovered 
that this was just a movie set. Fol- 
lowing the completion of these, 
people began moving in Airstream 
trailers which were soon to be made 
into the town trailer court. It was 
then that things began to escalate. 
The movie crew began to arrive and 
the population of the new town 
"Perkinsville" (otherwise known as 
Burns) began to rise.
